EKWB Supremacy Elite Series CPU Water Blocks Start Shipping

EK-Supremacy Elite, the premium bundle containing the best CPU water block on the market and the best thermal interface on the market - the EK-TIM Indigo Xtreme - is now finally shipping. Please note that due to high demand this product may be shown as out of stock at the time of purchase. These water blocks are therefore manufactured on daily basis to ensure adequate supply and daily re-stock.

EK-Supremacy Elite is the premium bundle containing the best CPU water block on the market - the EK-Supremacy - Full Nickel - and the best thermal interface on the market - the EK-TIM Indigo Xtreme. EK-Supremacy is a universal CPU water block that fits all modern CPU sockets with a universal mounting mechanism that offers error-preventing, tool-less installation. The result is a perfect installation which results in perfect performance every time. EK-Supremacy is truly the best product for performance seeking enthusiasts.

EK-Supremacy is a successor of the legendary EK-Supreme HF water block launched in 2010. It's main improvements are:
  • Better hydraulic performance: due to improved design up to 20% higher flow compared to EK-Supreme HF
  • Better cooling performance: up to 2°C lower CPU temperatures compared to EK-Supreme HF
The EK-Supremacy cooling engine uses similar, yet refined as per needs of modern microprocessors, fin design as its ancestor. The cooling liquid accelerates through jet plate's nozzle and turbulently continues its path through numerous very thin channels which provide extreme cooling surface area. Specifically designed and carefully machined copper base (sometimes referred to as ‘cold plate’) is made from purest copper available on the market and is further polished to absolute mirror finish. This alone greatly improves the cooling performance of EK-Supremacy.

EK-Supremacy is also the first CPU water block on the market which has been optimized for every modern CPU platform independently with the use of different type of jet plates to ensure the best contact with the CPU integrated heat spreader (IHS). These jet plates of different shape and thickness are enclosed with the product.

EK-TIM Indigo Xtreme is an Engineered Thermal Interface (ETI) that fits neatly between a CPU lid and water block (or heat sink) to keep CPUs cooler. Unlike greases, metallic thermal interface pads or liquid metal alloys, Indigo Xtreme is a self-contained and sealed structure, deploying a Phase Change Metallic Alloy (PCMA) which reflows and fills surface asperities on the CPU lid and heat sink.

The Supremacy Elite Series consist of models specific to socket types:

Me neither. Seems someone got some inspiration while gazing at their wooden workbench after a session with a holepunch. Could be worse, the circles could be smiley's...EKWB Supremacy Embarrassment Edition :o :o :o

Not really I wouldn't think. There's about a 2-3°C (and that's being generous) variance between the top CPU blocks (Koolance CPU-370, RayStorm, Apogee HD, DD-M6 etc.). Bigger consideration would be flow restriction -matching the block with the loop ,heat dissipation qualities of the rad(s), and block mounting (ease of fitting and conflicts with some boards' capacitor height/placement).

Its all over the net. People hate those circles. Some holes are not aligned to the circle and makes it look unsymmetrical.

Yeah since the first of these circles showed up it's been nothing but constant complaints. Haven't seen a single positive comment. So why are they still charging ahead? Yet another company unable or unwilling to listen to consumers? Seems so.

+1, those circles are present on every EK waterblock released in recent years. they do look good on blocks with acrylic tops.

The circles look good. There, ruined your whole argument.

Looking at the pics, all I can see is :-( in the second one.

The circles don't bother me a ton, but they should have at least made both ports line up on a circle it looks dumb.

I'm using a black top EK Supremacy. Block works good, comes with very good mounting hardware and it works great. Looks aren't its strong point I guess.. I don't really care about looks. Maybe I can glue some glitter or rhinestones on it.

What'd you do with erocker? Imma calling the FBI.



BTW, what way you got that block mounted? got a pic?


Nevermind it's off-topic, but a post in the mypcatm would be nice! ;)


I needs me a new block..got rands, pump, but no block for current sockets. The only thing I do nto like about htis block is that indigo extreme being sized for each socket, but I'm pretty sure the block is universal?


Did you get an AMD mount with your earlier version?

Problem is EK is the only one doing these "crop circle" designs and as such I don't see it "fitting in", but wTf do I know anyways? Seems a lot of people feel the same way but Eddy is in love lol

Aside from them being unaesthetic (IMO) all these circles increase tooling time and tool wear, things which eventually lead to higher end $$$ for the consumer :( If they did something for performance OK but....

Sounds like an EK marketing stunt: "EK released yet another glorious product today. It is now the best thing on the planet."

Funny, when they released the "Best" thing on the market it can be improved upon later. Shouldn't the best reign true without revisions?

Good job EK, you deserve the pat on the back.

The EK I have is universal aside from mounting hardware and the plates inside the block. Mine came with a full universal hardware kit and all three plates for inside of it.

Good point. As a machinist I KNOW that takes an extra process, tool, and programming for a purely aesthetics thing with no function and that frankly the majority of people don't even like.
